I am new to brewing and very interested in in brewing from scratch not using extracts and so on where can I find good reliable information on how to go about this and what equipment I need to do so?
Give this one a read. : http://www.howtobrew.com/sitemap.html
Also, for specific items, use the search feature for this site and or check out the homebrew forms sorted by topic.
Pick up Charlie Papazian's book, The New Complete Joy of Home Brewing. It goes from simple extract brews through all-grain brewing.
This website also has some good pics for illustrating what's going on and what equipment could work. http://cruisenews.net/brewing/infusion/
There are several ways and a variety of equipment for each part, though.
Palmer's "How to Brew" is all I read when I started all grain brewing and, frankly, I think it's all anyone needs to read to be a great all grain brewer.
